Albert and Barbara Tucker Gallery, Heide Museum of Modern Art

15 September 2012 to 10 February 2013

Curator: Kendrah Morgan

Disenchanted with the conservatism of the local art scene, he joined the postwar exodus of artists hungry for firsthand experience of European art—past and present—which had been inaccessible during the years of world conflict.
